#1 of 6 Difference between 2001 GMC K2500HD and C2500HD?
Feb 04, 2005 (6:44 am)
I have a 2001 GMC 2500HD 4x4 Extended Cab that I'm getting ready to sell. It's got a 6" Superlift suspension lift. Anyway, I'm going to sell it on Cars.com and maybe Trucktrader.com. I'm unsure whether my truck is a K2500HD or a C2500HD. I've got the original sticker right here with me and can't find it anywhere on there. Does anyone know how I can find out which mine is?

the difference between K and C is 4x4 versus 4x2. You'll note in the fith, sixth, and seventh digits of your VIN, it reads K29 - if it were a 2WD truck, it'd be a C29.
Sorry, I do 20 GM lemon law cases per week, and with the huge influx of cases for engine tap/piston slap, I have all the model numbers memorized.

Thanks. That's just the information I was looking for. I really love the truck, but I started working for an auto manufacturer about a year ago and I want to get a vehicle built at my plant.
#4 of 6 Sure - bear in mind,

GM trucks really don't have the C/K designation any more, like way back when they were identified as the Chevy/GMC C/K, and had C10, C20, K5, K30, etc markings on the outside. Most value guides still recognize them this way, though, and I think most consumers will get the idea.

Tag onto the previous post.
It appears that the '98 year was designated C/K in the Helms manual, though the C/K on the truck was no longer displayed. The Silverado was a trim designation.
In '99 the Silverado was the model.

in 1999, in the 1500 series, you had the choice of the Silverado/Sierra (new style) or classic style - in the 2500/3500, the Silverado/Sierra new body style didn't kick in until 2001.
